New Build Residential Property

Alan Wood and Partners

A distinguished new house, built in a Georgian style, sitting within the mature landscape of the Howardian Hills. The building replaced a previous house in a very poor state of repair.

The new house has received significant local and regional praise for being an elegant country house, befitting of its setting.

Engineering and Design Factors

The house is designed of two storeys, laid out around a central hall and staircase, above which is a central lantern light. The Building is of traditional masonry with a rafter and purlin roofs.

Description of the Works

The house features four distinct elevations:- the ‘front’ (northwest) entrance is defined as the formal entrance to the property; the southwest and southeast elevations are both grand formal elevations providing views from the main rooms across the gardens and woodland to the lakes beyond. The southeast elevation includes a central arched bay which provides a balcony to French doors at first floor level. The northeast elevation looks towards the service courtyard and is much simpler in style clearly differentiating is as the rear / service elevation.

Additional works were added a few years after the original construction and included the addition of a swimming pool as well as internal alterations.
